Governor of Nasarawa Abdullahi Sule while speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today, says the reason some governors of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) are defecting to the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) is that APC is in the process of getting stronger and the opposition party has become very weak and the situation is getting worse.
“We have been a very strong party and we are doing the best we can to continue to be stronger and the only way we can be stronger is to get more and more people and the right people to get are the leaders of the opposition. That’s what we are trying to do and God so kind we are doing that,” the governor stated.
Sule’s comments come on the heels of the latest defection move by Governor Bello Matawalle of Zamfara State, an exercise that the governor says is a signal suggesting that the opposition leaders are seeing what President Muhammadu Buhari is doing.
When asked if the desire of the APC is to plunder the opposition such that come 2023 only the ruling party will be standing, Governor Sule said “PDP has always been weak since President Muhammadu Buhari came in,” adding that all that is being seen at the moment is that the party is becoming “weaker and weaker”.
He boasted that the APC is doing a very good job by ensuring that it opens its doors and give Nigerians what they are looking for when it comes to governance.
